I was thrilled to attend a banquet in which Hal  McRae  received the Senator Edgar H. Price, Jr. Lifetime Achievement Award presented by the Family Health Care Centers of Manatee.  Hal and his wife, Jo, are terrific individuals and we have become good friends, as they also reside in the Lakewood Ranch area.  Hal was one of the best designated hitters in the MLB.  I have always been a BIG fan of his and it is so nice to see him doing such wonderful things after his playing career and giving back to others.  They are my kind of people!!!!

“A salute to Mike Vrabel of the Titans as his team dominated the Patriots. Vrabel, a pupil of Bill Belichick, put the hurt on his mentor.”
